Brian Drolet interviews Judge Zakia Hakki, at the Global Journey for Peace conference hosted by Finn Ruder at the Millenium Hoeel across from the UN. Part of a State Dept endorsed group of Iraqi women. - Interview interrupted and restarted.
Judge Zakia Hakki was Iraq's first female judge, appointed in the Saddam era. Bitterly anti-Saddam, She welcomed and still supports the .S. occupation. Very antagonistic to the Code PinkIraqi Women's delegation. Yet the interview reveals the ugly reality of the U.S. presence. Discusses distinctions between religions, growing up Kurdish, law school, seperations in Iraq, witch-hunts, oil as a curse, regime change, Iraq Culture, optimism about iraq healing.
